With a vaccine being distributed throughout the state, Alaskans are surging back to the recall to help gather signatures. Volunteer coordinator Erin Jackson is fielding new emails every day and has these thoughts to share.
“Going forward, the only thing that matters is putting ink to paper,” Jackson said. “There are tens of thousands Alaskans out there that are ready to sign this petition, it is our job to give them the opportunity.”
Jackson outlines the following ways to volunteer. Booklet Follow-ups – This is different from cold calling people and trying to get them involved. We are chasing booklets, so we want you to call ten folks that have requested booklets and follow up continually until they submit their booklet or they tell you to bug off! Plus this is a great way to make friends. Once you have confirmation your 10 signatures have submitted, you log back into the phone bank so you can make 10 more friends. And if you feel like you can handle more than 10 folks at a time, keep on rolling. We just ask that you follow up with your list once a week.

Hosting a petition – have folks come to you! If you have a SAFE place to collect signatures, we will create a list of folks with contact name, phone number and addresses to distribute to those that are interested in signing in person. This is a great way for small businesses and community groups to get involved in supporting the effort. You can host it at your home but ONLY if you are okay with the general public your address.
